    ie, by RDP you can verify the box you're talking to is the box you want to be talking to.

    Otherwise it might be worth trashing the arp table and then trying to reconnect, I've seen random shenanigans with shares when people have had poisoned arp tables.
    Have had it where you ping a hostname and it can't find it and it pings a different hostname thats similar but not the hostname I originally pinged which returns the wrong ip , same happens when doing an nslookup, tracert etc so good point on the ping and not relying on arp utils ie ping etc

    Yes, just use an elevated comand prompt to do it.

    Not related to what FN GM is trying to do

    Logged in as a standard AD user that has local admin rights, Held down left shift --> Right clicked on command prompt --> run as other user --> logged on using domain admin account and tried to do some commands and got access denied

    Closed command prompt and just right clicked on the command prompt and selected run as administrator and did the commands again, they worked straight away

    Not sure if that will help

    Also seeing as the mapped drives are on the virtual server - the network settings on the virtual server, do you get the same settings ref bridged mode or otherwise ? Can't remember the name of the other setting ?

    If so just wondering if changing between the 2 makes any diff ?
